Classical Melody in C

Animated Classical Melody in C tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This classical composition is in the key of C major.

The thumb plays the bassline, which is consistent and simple - repeating through C, B and A notes along the open A string. The melody also starts simply - mirroring the bassline notes at the start (albeit an octave higher) to help you get a flavour for the basic structure of this composition.

After this C-B-A intro has been played through twice, the bassline remains consistent, but the melody takes off. The melody uses notes from the C major scale (C D E F G A B C), and the fingerpicking is freestyle - thumb for the bass notes, fingers across melody notes.

Once you are comfortable playing this tune, use it as a platform to learn more about scales and melodic progression. Try adding in different basslines and mixing them with different melodies and scales. It's a world of fun and opportunity. Although this is quite a quick ActionTab, it is actually moderately easy and well worth the practice.
